December 3-4, 2011 CAST/TACA Studio Tour

 It's only a week till the Studio Tour! What a quick year that was. Last year I opened my studio to visitors on the CAST/TACA Studio Tour in Sewanee along with Sharon Bandy and Jan Quarles and a good time was had by all. This year I'm going to be flying solo because my studio is so tiny and I have more work to display. Jan will be there to assist, but won't be showing this year, mainly because she put all her available time and energy into launching Fiber in the Boro (and what a great show that was!). Sharon will have her own fabulous space at St. Andrews Sewanee. BTW, Sharon has started weaving and she is a natural, so please go check out her stuff...nice! Such edges! But I digress.

This year the Studio Tour is on the weekend of December 3 and 4. You can find a printable brochure complete with map of Sewanee showing all the lovely studios here. It includes all the artists on the tour from Sewanee to Monteagle and inbetween. Also, don't miss the Full CAST Show at the St Andrews Sewanee School Gallery.

If you come to my studio you will find an array of fine wearables and accessories, mostly knitted from handspun yarns, some felted. There will be scarves, wraps, cowl, cuffs, fingerless gloves, bags (large and small) and jackets. There will also be some handdyed sock yarn, both my AuNaturel semi solids and some multicolored handpaints.

Also, Studio Tour is always on the same weekend as Sewanee's Festival of Lessons and Carols. This immensely popular event takes place in All Saints Chapel in the quad of the University of the South. They festoon this gothic hall of stonework and stained glass with evergreens and candles and then fill the air with song and pipe organ music. So there is much to see and do on the mountain Studio Tour weekend.
